Scale obsessed while figuring this out is probably a bad combo. Like you've seen, it takes time and the scale will bounce. But it seems like the key to being "free" from the diet mentality. Instead of "I can't have that" it becomes "do I really want it? If so, then go ahead and have it. If not, you don't have it.". Control, choice, power!!
Agree 1000%! I too hope to one day get to a point where I can have a variety of food and be "free" of the restraint of 'dieting'. Actually I know I will.

I think it's great Deb that you're practicing this prior to "goal". I admire you and Meek with being brave enough to do this now. I'll join one day soon...right now, I'm learning to control my mental attachment to food. One day at a time.

Exactly!! you do what is right for you!!! We all have to! As you head on your journey, ALL OF YOU!! we are rooting you on just as you do us!!!

Trial and error, for sure. Isn't it sad how mentally messed up we ALL ARE about food?... It goes so deep though, and takes time to get through it... everybody has their own time table though, and no judgement from anyone .. that Is why I love the support here in our journals!!

Great response. I agree.

We all have to go through our own journeys, but together with a lot of love and support, we will get there.

Deb, it sounds like you have found what works for you (mentally, emotionally and physically). IMO, that is half the battle right there! We try so many things in our journey and they just don't suit who we are (personality type, etc.) and we end up worse off than when we started. Just finding something that suits us is such a wonderful thing!

Happy Saturday, my friend!

Thank you Brenda!! I totally agree! It really has to FIT.. that is a big key to making it work. Hope your Sunday is going well! I just got back from a nice visit at my Mom's. Got lots done, and a wonderful visit with my Son.

Now if this darn rain, lightning, thunder and wind would go away, it would be a perfect day!..

Morning Deb, good to hear that your weekend was good. Have a nice Monday, how is the weather now? Here in MI it is gloomy and raining but I the rain. I like the way earth smells after it rains, well as long as I don't smell stinky earth worms I like it.

love the WORM comment!! Cause right now, it is real wormy smelling outside!!..

We have had non stop rain for days now, and it is flooding all over the place, but not at my house since I live on a little hill... Love the GREEN, and the wonderful smell of spring. Later this summer we are going to be wishing for rain, so I am not gonna complain too loudly!

I am so happy to hear you ladies are getting into the groove with P2!!! cheering you all on!! Even If I am not in that same place, we all do what we have to do for us and that is OK!!!!! Looking forward to being jealous of your losses!!....

Oh those stinky worms!!!!! Good to hear that the flooding is staying away from your home. Your home sounds so quaint and cozy, I picture it sitting up on that hill and greenery(is this even a word ?)all around. Yes Deb, we all have to do what will help us get more healthy. I knew I was going to attempt another round with Hhcg so the time is now for me. Losses, will come and go but I will NEVER be able to get the friendship I have with you and others on this journey and that is what I am concentrating on during this protocol which I KNOW will be very difficult without your support. Thank you for the support lady!

Sounds like you had a good weekend!!

Inspired by you, and some of my other LCF's, I'm taking a scale vacation, then going on a real vacation . I'm leaning toward a LC WOE, but not avoiding something if I really want it. I'm stopping my C25K and switching over to exercise I enjoy and will stick with. It's quite liberating!! Thanks for living by example and showing it can be done. Years and years of deprivation, diet obsession and fear of food will take a long time to overcome. Working on hearing then listening to my body. I do hope to be able to maintain my current size and weight along the way, but we'll see.

Awe thanks Julie!! I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!

Girl you have EARNED THIS!!! relax, and let it come naturally... you are gonna be fine.. BELIEVE in yourself!!! this is something I am working on every single day, but I do think of myself as kind of a rebel, and I have never been afraid to try something different or new... SOOOOOOOOOO....

Just know that your body knows best Julie, and you will succeed! DO NOT be hard on yourself for anything... easier said than done, but like you said, this is so freeing, you have to let it work in all ways... no beating ourselves up for minor slips.. it is part of life!!!

Now have a wonderful day, week, and vacation!!!

I agree with Deb, you can do it! It does take time to let go of the fear of food and to work on listening to your body. Enjoy your vacation.
